Who we are

Early Break was originally established in 1994 as a specialist treatment, information and support service for children and young people who used drugs and/or alcohol.

Our Story

Since then however we have continued to develop and evolve and now offer a wide range of services across several geographical areas in the North West. However, due to the nature of charitable funding and commissioning, these services may only be available in some areas so please get in touch with any queries.

Our practice is rooted in person-centred theory reflected in our values and relationships. In addition to our core offers of Advocacy, our Holding Families Programme and accredited Training and Resources, we also offer Holistic Therapies, Emotional Health & Wellbeing groups, Mindfulness sessions, specialist Bereavement & Loss Counselling, Outreach, a ‘Fresh Start’ anti-bullying project and a Families Living Well programme.
